What is the thing to do for a cat's asthma?


Answer by  rolala (171)

Bring your cat to the vet asap. Go to an animal hospital immediately if your cat is experiencing an asthma attack. Your veterinarian can help you plan a treatment that may include a course of steroids and/or inhaled medications in addition to other medications needed to address any accompanying symptoms.

Reduce irritants in the cat's environment, such as cigarette smoke and chemical fumes. Switch to an natural, unscented, low-dust litter. Get a humidifier and put the cat on a healthy diet. The vet may prescribe an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid or a bronchodilators that eases respiration by relaxing the cat's airway.

You should reduce the cat's exposure to any environmental allergens in your household that could aggravate the asthma. The most common allergens include cat litter, pollen, smoke, mold and mildew, various household chemicals as well as dust and dust mites. Also discuss the possible use of corticosteroids and bronchodilators with your veterinarian as further methods to control the asthma.

The first line of treatment for asthmatic cats are corticosteriods. Other medications that may be helpful include airway dilators, Cyproheptadine, antihistamines, Zamflurkast, and Cyclosporine. These drugs must be prescribed by your veterinarian. It's also important to minimize irritants in the cat's living environment: cigarette smoke, dust, and sprays.

Asthma in cats can be difficult to treat. There is medicine you can give to your cat, but you will need to go to the vet to get a prescription.


Answer by  Mariana39 (440)

Eliminate the possible asthma causes from the cat's environment (mold, dust, pollen, smoke). Use only unscented litter, and preferably a brand that doesn't contain clay.

Put them in an oxygen tent daily so kitty can get some extra oxygen in its body. Try not to let kitty get to excited either.
